NIH Medical Research Scholars Program: now accepting applications
The National Institutes of Health Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP) application process is open from Oct. 1 – Jan. 13.
The MRSP is a yearlong research training program designed to attract creative, research-oriented medical, dental and veterinary students to the NIH intramural campus in Bethesda, Md.
The MRSP is designed for U.S. citizens and permanent residents enrolled in accredited medical, dental or veterinary programs who have completed their core clinical rotations. This does not exclude students with strong research interests from applying prior to having completed their clinical rotations.
During the year, students engage in mentored basic, clinical or translational research projects that match their professional interests and research and career goals. Their research experiences are supplemented by academic activities, featuring lectures by world-renowned scientists, clinical rounds with research patients from the NIH Clinical Center, and an interactive journal club addressing major issues in clinical research.
